4DiscGolf.com recently signed an agreement with the PDGA making us an Authorized PDGA Registration Service. Besides letting our tournament directors and players know that we are in compliance with all PDGA rules one great benefit is to our new status is that we can now begin automatically updating the PDGA player listings from our servers at 4DiscGolf.com.
Effective immediately TDs can click one button to push their registered player listing from 4DiscGolf.com to the PDGA's tournament manager. Previously TDs had to cut and paste their list from 4DG to the PDGA site and then proceed through approximately a half dozen steps to complete the transaction. Now, once the (PDGA provided) password has been entered one click is all it takes to update the listing.
We are working on an additional upgrade to our system that will automatically update the PDGA listing immediately when a player checks out. This means that the TD can just sit back and watch the PDGA list get updated with no interaction required on their part. We will also be providing a way for TDs to modify the listing on 4DG for those cases where a player asks to change divisions or they provide a newly issued pdga number.
We look forward to a continued relationship with the PDGA and hope to continue to improve our interface for TDs and players.
